I received my D200 about three days before Nikon posted in their FAQ's that all new production line units was "fixed." No so!!!

Mt friends and now mine (his is serial #301xxxx and mine is 3009xxx) has banding at all iso's from 100-800. Here is a question I sent to Nikon this am concerning my problem:

I just bought a D200 just before the report on your FAQ's stated that the newer units do not exibit banding as it has been fixed on the new production lines.

I have banding at nearly all ISO's (my serial number is 3009xxx). I can use any type of lens, however, yesterday I was taking some random photos with my 70-200mm f/2.8 vr lens and when taking pictures of flying jet airliners, the entire blue sky has vertical line that is very noticable even at 60% (100 - 800 iso).

Just this morning, just after the sun came up, the moon was still quite visible, I took several images again at various iso's and again more banding.

I don't understand??? If any new camera (D200) is purchased and it has been fixed on the assembly line, why do I have this banding? I had two pictures that showed banding done at Calypso imaging in San Jose on a lightjet printer. Calypso up-sized the images to 20x24 (I have had several images done with the D70 at this same resolution an no problems) at a cost of 40 plus dollars per image (over $80.00) out the door. The banding clearly shows in these pictures exactly where it was on the computer monitor. I am out $80 plus the cost of purchasing this camera and I have no clear understanding as to why I am having trouble if the problem is solved?

If the solution is to return the camera to be serviced, then again I am out money for the shipping. I honestly love the camera and feel that it will serve my needs, however, I am tired of spending money on a defective product.

Looking forward to their reply. I will keep you posted. I for one, do not believe all the new units being sold today have been adjusted. Ours are only a week old.
